Wierenga has written a trending piece that many Christians will relate to: growing up in a home and church in which being a Christian meant a lot of rules, and struggling with the consequences of always trying to perfectly follow the rules handed down to her. It can lead us to try to make up for our sins and try to earn favor with God, which the Bible says we just can’t do.
